|Contents:||Wake! for the sun who scatter'd into flight --
Before the phantom of false morning died --
Now the new year reviving old desires --
Irám indeed is gone with all his rose --
Come, fill the cup, and in the fire of spring --
Whether at Naishapur or Babylon --
Ah, not a drop that from our cups we throw --
I sometimes think that never blows so red --
A book of verses underneath the bough --
Myself when young did eagerly frequent --
Ah, make the most of what we yet may spend --
When you and I behind the veil are past --
But if the soul can fling the dust aside --
I sent my soul through the invisible --
Alas! that spring should vanish with the rose! --
The worldly hope men set their hearts upon --
Each morn a thousand roses brings, you say --
They say the lion and the lizard keep --
Ah, fill the cup! what boots it to repeat --
Ah, moon of my delight, that knows no wane --
As then the tulip for her morning sup --
Alas! that spring should vanish with the rose!
